Responding to the UK Treasury leak last night [Wed 10 Sept] and the responses of banks today, Sir George Mathewson, former Royal Bank of Scotland Chairman and Chief Executive, said:
"There is no real jobs, revenues or investment impact in any of these technical announcements. They are also very similar to what has been said before. In any event, of course there will be a currency union in the interests of both Scotland and the rest of the UK. The UK Government-driven scaremongering and its political gamesmanship is of detriment to both market confidence and the quality of democratic debate. Voters will not be swayed by these tactics. The momentum remains with the Yes campaign towards a more prosperous, stronger and fairer Scotland."
